In a fundraising effort for the shuttered Valencia St. storefront, the OC
crew has compiled a powerful two-hour program of docs, cult jams, &
even a live performance!
The First of May has traditionally been a holiday for the
celebration of the worker, to honor her labor and to agitate for
self-management and mutual aid.
Among the featured pieces is the History of Mayday, by local light Fred Glass, author of From Mission to Microchip. Also anchoring this
energized webcast is April Camlin’s ventriloquist act/lecture on the 1871 Paris Commune!
We’ll also see subMedia’s Eagle Stew, a hilarious cut-up of the Capitol Mob Riot, Videofreex’ Portapak
portrait of the Mayday 1971 shutdown of Washington DC 50 years ago, and a stirring eulogy by Anthony Buchanan on the loss of
our cultural heroes Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gene Youngblood.
PLUS new pieces by Banksy, Kelly Gallagher, Pop-O-Pies, and a sing-along karaoke version of L'Internationale. The program is hosted by OC
curator Craig Baldwin, with thought-provoking special
guests sharing the camera.
